For the Kids

Through programs like the Urban Youth Initiative and Kids Cruise, NEOCycle is committed to promoting cycling throughout Northeast Ohio.

The NEOCycle Kids Cruise is a FREE ride for children ages 10 & under. The ride will be approximately 1 mile along the flat, paved path in the lower portion of Edgewater Park. Parents are invited to congregate at the start/finish line to cheer on their riders!

All riders receive a race bib and free giveaways.

NOTICE: All riders must have the physical and cognitive ability to control their bicycle and ride on the designated course. The course will have safety monitors throughout, and children will be grouped by age/ability to ensure each rider’s safety. Two wheeled bikes with or without training wheels are welcome.

No strollers, joggers, ride-alongs, tricycles, scooters, or roller skates/blades will be allowed.
